For Nikhil Siddhartha, Karthikeya 2 is more than box office success or pan-India recognition. The actor explained that the movie is more about getting today’s generation closer to its cultural roots. He said, “We made this movie without keeping box office numbers in mind. It was a very honest attempt that we talk about Sri Krishna in the right way. And talk a little bit about our Indian roots and culture which I think the younger generation is not being informed about.
“We have the Marvel universe, we have Spiderman, the Avatar universe, but we don’t have a universe which talks about our Puranas and our Indian culture which was I feel much much better.”
